Cultivating Consciousness and Environmental Justice in Acjachemen and Tongva Homelands

The University of California, Irvine campus and surroundings are located on the shared ancestral territory of the Acjachemen and Tongva Peoples, many of whom maintain strong and active physical, spiritual, and cultural ties to the region and to the local environment. This discussion will bring together Native community leaders and academics with the UCI community for a panel discussion aimed at lifting up the Acjachemen and Tongva stories about the history of these lands, and discussing the relationships between the place, the university, and the Indigenous communities in whose territory the campus is located.
